 Question: why is the new SRAM GX introduction Video not part of the Friday fails?

 I don't know. the deore really tried to get it on there though.

 Maybe there should be a Thursday Fails the show new product launches so that we can understand the failures in the Friday Fails clips.

 They tried to upload it several times but it just wouldn't work correctly.

 Anybody else looking for another "Let my Ibis do the job!" Man, that was so funny.
  • 48 1
 I actually ride an Ibis and now I say that every time I approach a sketchy trail feature.

 Bikes are getting so good these days, but obviously that does not seem to help everyone. As always, "friday fails" is so funny to watch...

 “Let my ibis do the job!” Probably the best clip I’ve seen in months...
  • 2 0
 @RowdyAirTime: I think it's making crashes worse, but less frequent.
  • 2 0
 @4thflowkage: You might be right, since bikes are so much better and easier to ride fast these days, many new riders probably gain too much confidence too quickly and try more than they are actually capable of until they go over the limit and crash and burn...

 I heard Leatt's best ideas are birthed right after they watch Friday Fails as a company and laugh at all of us.

 It's always dudes with backpacks and full-face helmets with white sunglasses eating it the hardest.

 @Abacall: And the gravity shrub at 3:30. Once dude landed the drop there was no escaping its influence.

 @bikeybikeybikebike: "Don't hit that bush. Don't hit that bush. Don't hit that..." As he focuses directly on that bush.

 @blkmrktrider156: And there's the problem; it should be pull back, not pull up! ;-)

 Another sponsor is the Dolphin Swim school. Also, I want to see more of the after crash not girl screams and video goes to the ground.....

 What’s the lead time between uploading a video to ‘Crashes’, and being included in the Friday mash-up? My son can’t wait to see his face plant. I told him don’t worry, that fear was just an emotion and that the nice PB video editors will get to his clip soon.
  • 2 0
 LOL.

 I bet you told him to just send it on his first run up too

 This a clever comment on many levels

 Took about 5 weeks between uploading my video and making the cut. I’m the guy who got fixated on the shrub after the ladder drop! (As well as the guy who caused the shit out of the double in the clip just before...)

 @Mea03pj: thank you.

Was your PTSD from casing it helped or hindered by sharing the video with the world?

Asking for another dad.
  • 2 0
 @twozerosix: You can tell t’other dad that I was 100% helped by sharing...

In fact these crashes were years ago, but I did crash again the Thursday before the vid was released and broke 4 ribs, so the timing couldn’t have been much better! No video this time unfortunately!

 My anxiety instantly goes away when I see this on the front page.

 Weird, mine goes up, but the reptilian part of my brain that has a fascination with shadenfreude clicks it anyway.

 3:13 is one of my all time favorites. I love that the perfectly placed crash pad bounces him off trail while his buddy jumps right over him
  • 15 1
 It should have some kind of instruction to all the filmers: after a crash, keep filming, don't point your camera down and start running.
  • 11 0
 Seriously camera operators, keep the subject in the frame until the completion of the scene! What are we paying you for?!
  • 4 0
 And please, be silent and record the noises!!

 The jacket and gold chain at 0:47...

 Like some sort of super person with the "cape" flying all around. The gold chain was totally a bonus.

 Yaw. I'd consider that bail a Friday Win.

 Somehow the crash onto the metal bleacher bench made me do the "inhale through teeth sound" worse than all the other high speed, sendy/risky crashes. Falling onto metal. No thanks.

 Falling in love with metal though . . .

 2:05, those are some pretty big sends.

Oh yeah, and PB, thanks again for covering the last one so we can't see it.

 At 2:05 it was me lol
The last jump is around 25feet

 to be fair I think that's YouTube functionality, not PB's choice.

 My thoughts as well. Didnt expect it to be in Quebec as well. Them crazy canucks!

 @mxsled: Bummer about the crash, hope you're good!

Nice shots!

 @Lanebobane: You're probably right. I take it back. YouTube you suck!

Yep i'm fine!...i was lucky and my bike didn't even have a scratch.

 That dude at 3:00 on the wet bridge, I thought that was going to be way uglier.
  • 3 0
 Always jam your brakes "BEFORE" the bridge, not on it, especially when wet. Don't tell everyone this, or there will be less "friday fails"...

 I kept refreshing for the Friday Fails to load. My day is now complete.

 on the body cams you can here the riders groan, when they are in the air, right before they crash land. Nothing worse than knowing you are about to eat Sh!t.

 When there is a 3rd rider in the train, we all know he is rider the other side of his comfort zone!

 I love when the wife/girlfriend starts laughing at a crash! Especially when they don't realize how badly it hurt
  • 4 3
 It's literally their job. All of those years of staring at the glass ceiling gets taken out on you through moments like these.
  • 3 0
 Yes. So much shadenfreude at these guys asking their girlfriends to film them getting rad, eating it, and getting giggles in response. So good.
  • 5 0
 Sure, it's funny when we crash, but try laughing when your wife/girlfriend crashes. To avoid permanent self isolation, I strongly recommend not doing this...

 @RowdyAirTime: Equal rights definitely don't apply in that situation.

 Oh man that witch laughter at the opening .... don’t want to use profanities but what a.....

Loved that puddle diver lol

 The best part about Friday fails is learning how to say “are you okay?” In multiple languages!

 Was the first bloke trying to recreate the FF opening sequence?

 How to submit videos to friday fails? Is uploading the video into the crashes folder the way to do this?

 I believe so yes

 1:35 this kid has skills. Great react, awesome save.

 Man, nothing every beats the classic “getting nose heavy off this drop...better grab my front brake as hard as I possibly can”

 So many great pre-crash moans. That sounds you make when you know its about to hurt and there is absolutely nothing you can do!

 Yaas- The Don make Friday Fails! Nice to see Climbmax representing although sad the rider didn't hit the Ejaculator before casing that gap...
  • 1 0
 That guy with the big Ric Flair woooooo = The epitome of style over substance. Loose open jacket on that is in no way for riding in all so you can try to look super rad.

 Again no "kurwa" today ?? Its getting lame!

 The steeze is strong in the one at 0:42.

 Honestly the dude in the first crash just wanted to replicate the Friday Fails intro

 This week in sartorial fails, yellow stormtrooper helmet, gold chain and loose jacket at 0.45, purple striped shorts and novelty socks at 2:03, and pink shorts at 2:35.
